YMMV: Land of the Lost

Regarding the series:

  • Cult Classic
  • Fanon Discontinuity: Many fans like to assume the last episode of the first season, "The Circle," is actually set at the end of the second season, allowing the Marshalls to get home, and ignoring the third season entirely.
  • I Am Not Shazam: Despite what the theme song says, "Marshall" is the family's last name; the dad's name is Rick.
  • Narm Charm: IN SPADES!
  • Nightmare Fuel: The Sleestaks as a whole and several of the episodes.
  • Seasonal Rot: The third season got left out of the recent marathons on the Sci-Fi Channel and Chiller. With good reason.
  • Special Effect Failure: Claymuppet dinosaurs, blindingly mismatched green-screen transfers, yetis wrapped in shag carpeting, and a unicorn with a chinstrap, among many, many other examples. The Dopey puppet was a particularly bad example.
  • WTH, Casting Agency?: Future NBA Star Bill Laimbeer playing a Sleestak in the series. (Note that this was long before he made it to the NBA; he was only seventeen at the time.)
    • There are very few actors tall enough for Sleestak. There are many basketball players tall enough.
